The work at Bar del Corso (the former Beacon Pub, at 3057 Beacon Ave. S.) is continuing, with a projected opening date of mid-June. You can see a few more photos of the site in progress on the Bar del Corso blog, along with a picture of the blue-and-white-tiled pizza oven.
They’ve also posted a possible menu—see it here (PDF). According to the blog, “Menu offerings will be based on what is seasonally available so it will change quite often. But here’s a sample of what the menu could be.”

We previously mentioned the new Travelers restaurant which will soon be serving Indian food in the Culinary Communion/Tasha’s house on Beacon Avenue. Allison Austin Scheff at seattlemag.com posted a short article about it this week, with a bit of information about the menu and the projected opening date: late June.
The CHS Capitol Hill Seattle Blog posted an article about Travelers last week, discussing owner Allen Kornmesser’s intent to continue operating the original Travelers Tea Co. on E. Pine St., while expanding to the larger Beacon Hill space.

It’s not quite summer yet, but it’s getting closer! Along with a bit of sunshine, another sign of summer this year is the return of the Street Treats dessert van, serving cookies, ice cream, and dessert bars. Owner Diane tells us the van will return to the vicinity of 16th and Lander this Friday night from 6:30-8 p.m.
